I am currently trialling a Digital Portfolio system based on Inspiration - after review I preferred it to other options as it is simple to start up and allows the teacher to develop a template initially.  AS students become more proficient they can personalise it.  Because it is based on a visual layout, with pictures and symbols, many children who are ESL or struggling can also have great results.  There is great room for extension as well.
The final product can be converted and saved as html. Which then can be used on an intranet or internet, as well as copied to a CD with browser interface.
A very elementary sample is at:-
